New Thing: Challenge # 19

Challenge 19 – Spend 3 minutes listing things I think I can do in 3 minutes, and then test them all. Complete at least 3 to pass.

So, here’s my list…

1) Eat 15 After Eight mints (one by one, without using hands) – inspired by a dude on Britain’s Got Talent.
2) Knit 15 rows of 10 stitches, not including cast on and a foundation row.
3) Run (or walk or crawl) up AND down the stairs 3 times.
4) Stand on one leg without falling over or leaning on anything.
5) Thread 50 seed beads.
6) Drink 6 glasses of water.
7) Name 25 different colours.
8) Find 20 words from a 10 letter word given by an independent person.
9) Land 25 marbles in a bucket from the other side of the table.

And here’s what happened…

1) FAIL. I got 13 and a half. Cayden called time as I chewed the 14th. I did beat Jen. She only managed 8 and a half. Cayden tried and did all 15 in 2 minutes and 23 seconds!

2) FAIL again. I did 5 rows. I seriously overestimated how fast I knit.

3) I was tempted to not even try this one, because I didn’t think I could do it. But I did. And I did it in 1 minutes and 2 seconds. I do feel like I’m having a heart attack though.

4) FAIL! I got 2 seconds, and they let me have another try, then I got 3 seconds and landed on the cat.

5) FAIL! I got 19. Not as easy as you’d think. Cayden did it and got 51. Jammy git.

6) Pass, but not comfortably. I drank 6 200ml glasses of water in 2 minutes and 20 seconds. Talk about feeling bloated though.

7) Pass. Not as easy as it sounds, but I passed.
